    This morning I downloaded 5.0 to my Tour. It made several changes to the texting part of the phone, and I do not like it. Is there a link for a 3rd party download for the old 4.7?

    Some of the issues: You can no longer hide sent messages, you now see txts as a stream and this cannot be changed, and you have an added step in sending a text as it prompts you to send to another or scroll down and click to start the message.

    I send about 2500 txts a month, so this is very inconvenient.

    Help is appreciated.

    BTW, to send a text, just press enter. It actually removes a step to sending a text!

    Do yourself a favor and stick with 5.0 for a week or so. I promise you that you will laugh at the fact that you considered downgrading. Its a much better OS and your are just not used to the changes. Give it time!

    yeah you just need to get used to it. it only seems like a pain now because it is not what you are used to.

    I suspect the OP is having issue with the threading of multiple SMSes, which to some business types, really turns out to be less than desirable.

    i agree... I was hesitant for the longest time and i am so glad I did it!! i love the threaded text, better contact options for ringtones and text sounds, longer battery life, etc..

    berger is right. this is my main issue, and does not seem to have a quick fix.
    I can live with the other two, but the streaming sms's don't work for my business needs. I need all messages to be seperate.
